Work of hands and hearts

In Swahili, mifuko means pocket, and we ensure no one is left with empty pockets. For the artisans in Kenya, Ethiopia, Tansania and Ghana it means fair pay, empowerment and less dependence on unpredictable farming as a source of income. We are guided by our core values in everything we do: unique, joyful and socially responsible. With timeless design and high-quality materials, we want our products to bring joy for a long time and at the end of their lifecycle they can be recycled in an environmentally friendly. Just as every one of our artisans is unique so are the products he or she makes.

Mifuko Trust

Mifuko Trust was founded in 2012 as a non-profit organization to improve the welfare of the artisan’s communities and fight against poverty. Trust has launched different types of projects, all initiated by the locals, such as purchasing sun energy lamps and rainwater tanks. 

The Finnish and Kenyan project managers, Peter Manyolo and Anita Lintula, took up the challenge in late 2021 and applied for funding from Fingo Powerbank to create community-based innovations. Community-led innovation is about ordinary people developing and testing solutions that benefit the whole community. Together with Butterfly Works, a Dutch organisation, Fingo Powerbank trained the applicant organisations with co-creation with the users of the product in design thinking methods.
